1:03 pm
maybe pushing it. what levels are we eyeing now. >> 1525 on the s&p is what they are looking at. you can feel they just want to take it there. >> five points away. >> five points away. actually four points away. not a lot of volume but feel the grind going in front of the state of the union address, tomorrow's retail sales number. they are going to spin it as best they can but it's interesting. >> is it possible tore president obama to derail this rally, now that we don't have to worry about the debt ceiling? >> not only debt ceiling but last tuesday he put up sequestration. we're not going to come to an agreement, a couple of solutions, kick that can down the road, time to think and talk about it. you saw it grind higher. not real volume. listen, you want them, pay up, we're happy to sell on the way up. >> we're going to talk about apple during the course of the session, course of the program. what is your takeaway from what tim cook said or didn't say today? >> listen, i think it's very
1:04 pm
interesting this whole conversation with what einhorn has now created with apple. this conversation ensuing. i like apple. i like apple where it is at the moment. >> did you like it all the way down. >> i said a long time ago when it started to crack at 700, you had to be careful. there's so many names we saw at the end of the year, get into it, push and push the way the market got ahead of itself. i fully expect the market will back off some. it needs to some. if you look it up, exactly what it did over couple of months. >> thank you. breaking news in the bond market, three-year note up for auction. rick santelli tracking action at cme. were they hungry for government debt? >> to put perspective, we're talking three-year, 35 basis points, 32 billion, the yield
1:05 pm
.411, which is actually a little bit less than the .415 on the bid side of the wi market, lower yield, higher price. the bid to cover, 3.5910 auction average. that's exactly what it was, 3.59, indirect very light. 18 less than 10 auction average of 30. once again directs really steal the show at 26.9. we're going to give this auction a b plus. tyler, back to you. >> i'll pick it up. apple the big stock story. ceo tim cook making headlines during his q&a session in san francisco. cook taking on a host of issues from apple's cash, acquisitions, battle with hedge fund manager david einhorn. investors reacting there. you can see no great boost. overall jon fortt live at the goldman sachs technology and internet conference where tim cook took the stage. you know, john, it's
1:06 pm
interesting. the man is a very clever man. he knows that his company has lost a quarter of its market cap. he knows today would be the day he could start to reverse that. yet he said nothing really that investors could grab hold of. what was the body language, because you were in there. what was the body language on returning cash to shareholders? >> simon, the overall message was stop freaking out. everything is fine. we're going to return cash. we're going to do it our way. we're not going to do it the way einhorn seems to want. other messages investors will find interesting, margins, emerging markets and innovation. number one on margins, he seemed to say, yes, i've had many, a little margin hit. through supply chain cost management, volume, halo effect, people who buy many, buy other devices, we expect margins to come back up as they have in the past. on emerging markets, never say never in a sense.
1:07 pm
the only thing we'll never do it put out a crappy product, talking to a cheaper iphone saying they will address those markets in his own way, actually mentioning ipad being a way they address the criticism, they didn't have a cheaper mac, maybe a phone, something different is what i took away from that. finally on innovation he said we're firing on all cylinders, still talked about the good people, executives, and still with apple. >> thank you. president obama takes center stage to deliver his state of the union, a lot on the table, immigration reform, economy, massive debt. the response will come from marco rubio of florida. joining us, peter roskam of illinois, chief deputy whip for the republican conference. sir, nice to have you here. >> thank you very much. >> you're from illinois, you know a lot about spending, not that you helped create it. tonight are we going to hear anything about that side of the ledger, the spending, you think?
1:08 pm
>> you get the joke on illinois spending and it's in a downward spiral. it's a type of world view from an economic point of view that is completely an mating the white house. take illinois spending patterns and extrapolate that onto the u.s. economy, that's where the president is proposing to lead us about $26 trillion in debt. i don't think we're going to hear a lot about how the president can grow the economy through the private sector and why unemployment is still at a nagging 7.9%. i think that's where the action is and what he should be talking about but i don't think that's what we'll be hearing. >> when i was on "squawk box" this morning we entered a lot of democrats. they seem to think his last speech and the speech he's going to make tonight are going to be completely embracing both sides of the aisle. do you agree with that assessment? >> i'd be surprised. if you listen to the inaugural speech, this is going to be inauguration 2.0. i'm delighted to be surprised to hear a sincere bipartisan effort
1:09 pm
on the part of the president. what i've noticed over the past few years, the president's definition of bipartisanship is you vote for my stuff. i don't think that's a way to get to a remedy on a lot of these problems. already they are going back bought old democrat muscle memory and that is let's go to the taxpayers yet again, even though right at the end of des a huge boost in terms of new tax revenues coming in with the tax hike. >> what should marco rubio say tonight? can you give us any insight into what he might say to counter that thinking and persuade american people that's not the path. >> i don't ever any specific insight into what the senator is going to be talking about. my hunch is to cast a vision, an inclusive vision that describes what the economy is like, if it's growing and robust and dynamic yet again. not just struggling along at anemic growth rates where gdp continues to be downgraded. instead saying, look, tax rates that are reasonable, spending priorities that are reasonable, can create a foundation on which
1:10 pm
the economy can grow and flourish. that's been a hall mark for senator rubio and my expectations that is what he's talking about tonight. >> congressman, thank you for joining us. >> thanks. >> republican from illinois. >> don't miss coverage on president obama's state of the union address, 9:00 p.m. eastern time. we will carry the republican response as well. and christina's twicker, tweets and wicker. #sotu for a chance to see it. >> fashion company reporting a higher company profit boosted by a 70% gain in revenue. the stock is up, as you can see, 25% in three mondays. that is a retail team that knows what it's doing. >> absolutely. they are very hot right now. okay. coming up -- >> speaking of hot.
1:11 pm
>> supermodel kate upton is going to be here live to talk about being on the cover of "sports illustrated" swimsuit issue for the second year in a row. hasn't happened in 15 years. then from kate upton to jane wells. i love this two-shot. she's in las vegas with another tough assignment. >> you look very similar, jane. >> what does she have that i don't. all right. don't answer that. but as las vegas recovers a lot of that is due to chinese gamblers. a slowdown in china felt here. when "power lunch" returns.

1:16 pm
cosmopolitan owned by deutsche bank, a high-end salon aimed at asian gamblers a little over a year ago. >> our revenues have been 25% over what our projections were when we went to build it. the international visitors spend about 25% more than a domestic visitor. >> the funny things, earnings there hit a rough pack, it's seting a record. >> spend a lot in retail, foods and hopefully a lot of money at the table. >> jim says there may be slowdown in growth from chinese gamblers but we've never had a down year. they have been joined by thousands more asians from canada. more from cosmopolitan ceo, including my he thinks vegas is a leverage play on the housing recovery. michelle. >> that sounds super interesting. tell me, jane, not just gambling revenues. don't they spend a ton of money on fancy dinners for the chinese

1:18 pm
in this future of tv, this cableless over the top tv business. one thing i want to opponent out here that's particularly interesting, intel media is stressing what they are calling a true catch up service. you don't have to record it. if you miss anything, everything is going to be there and available to watch within seven days over 650 devices. intel says you'll be able to watch everything on radio and tv networks. sounds like interesting technology of there's certainly a number of partners involved but we will have to wait for more detail both on the launch date, what the actual device is they are selling and who this partners are. michelle, back to you. >> terrific, julia. we'll watch to see if the stock reacts. chinese tourism, jane just laid it out, they spent $8 billion according to department of commerce. obvious economic benefit but is there more? an economist with a deep knowledge of china in particular, investing in china for the u.s. good to have you here. >> investors in casinos, they
1:19 pm
should care about tourism. should other investors care? >> bigger than casino, this is china's globalization 2.0. the china we knew today absorbed huge amount of fdi around the world, turned it around. a lot of their jobs went along with that fdi into china. the next phase of chinese activity with the world means chinese consumers coming out into the world. chinese tourism dollars coming out an investment coming out as well. that's not a mixed blessing but all around good for u.s. >> you sent usa great chart that charts rise in chinese tourism in the united states as long as rise with chinese foreign investment into the u.s. they map each other almost perfectly. coincidence? >> absolutely not. it's the same phenomenon. china of 10 years ago didn't know how to do things abroad. same thing that's causing chinese tourists to come to the u.s. and spend hard earned dollars here are driving
1:20 pm
companies over. chinese tour is built business in china, run businesses in china and are thinking about what their global footprint might look like. there's no better marketing for america, inc. than spend vacation time with your family. >> when they vacation here, that could lead to more than foreign investments. >> absolutely. they never stop doing business. sitting at the casino tables, on the beach, in nashville, they are taking meetings. every local business wants to get together. >> chinese investment in the united states is extremely controversial. we've seen deals stopped. is it justified to be critical as some are. >> u.s. screens investment from all over the world. china is the new kid on our block so it's going to get the most immediate scrutiny. we hear a lot about deals knocked down. next um, u.s. portion of that going through. vast majority are going to succeed and go through without any problems. >> dan, thank you for joining

1:26 pm
mired in problems. ceo will right the ship for shareholders. set deadlines for cutting compensation, also set strict targets for return on equity. the board and top 125 executives at barclays will be held accountable for. on those 3700 jobs that will go, more than half in the investment bank, the bulk of those from asia. former ceo bob diamond, the bank moved aggressively to establish a heavy footprint there. underwriting down most in asia overall. that strategy proved to be a loser. downgrade global equities and stop trading certain commodities. the task facing them is straightforward, striking out against wild wes culture from which all banks have come under fire for regulators. >> i think this is true of the industry, also true of us. i think banks became too short sighted, too aggressive and too self-serving. >> when asked today, jenkins said managing ethically is the best defense against regulators
1:27 pm
trying to break up investment banks from retail banks, especially now thatclays investment bank makes up 60% of its profits. ironically or not, biggest contributor, acquisition of lehman brothers, not existing european. >> that isn't the end of the story, is it? a move in the uk to break investment banks away from their retail operations. clearly he hopes he can do enough to prevent that from happening further down the line. >> that's exactly right, simon. he got a question whether in five year's time there would be a move for the investment banks, even if you don't set up a separate shareholdering structure, you have separate boards, all intents and purposes separate companies that operate within the same structure. he thinks for the near term, that's not an option they will have to be embarking on. >> kayla, thank you very much. when we come back, "sports illustrated" swimsuit model will

1:33 pm
we have record levels for the russell 2000 as well as s&p midcap index. once again this rally, i guess you could say reconnecting or restarting after a pause in yesterday's session. part of that can beafter tributed to decent earnings news we received today. leading the charge, the gains we are seeing in financials, xlf, which is financial etf basically trading at a five-year high. take a look at bank stocks, goldman sachs, jpmorgan, citi trading at 52-week highs in the session. a home supply company stronger than expected, masco. that's bleeding into the houm home builders looking strong. >> thank you, mary. let's head to the nasdaq and check in on what seema mody has there. >> a lot of news in tech. interestingly enough it's

1:36 pm
profitability, doing quite well. asia, global growth picking up. i think there are reasons to be concerned. still a lot of head winds. however, i think as you continue to see this diminished tail risk from macrouncertainty, markets will move higher. >> let's scoot over that, elections in spain. could this be a start of a great long-term bull market. "wall street journal" raises on monday. could we get years now, years of 15, 18% returns on stocks. is that possible, or would you just be talking to say yes. >> i'd hike to believe that's possible. i'm certainly crossing my fingers we see those types of returns. >> why could it not happen? what would prevent it from happening? >> certainly possible flairup, europe two steps forward, one step back. look at the middle east. still that ongoing tension in iran between the west. >> but you say, that you see, neither south korea nor iranians
1:37 pm
has affected this market? >> it has not. you are absolutely right. it has not. i think directionally markets move fine. if you're asking, is it likely 15, double digit markets moving forward, i want to temper expectations. >> how are you allocating results, originally sector wise you like the u.s. better or worse or what? >> if we look around the world, risk equities on track with -- >> risk assets means stocks, high yields. got it. >> looking at stocks, i think there's a better opportunity in the emerging markets. you look at the price to book ratios, still trading 1.6, 1.7 times. in our view, an attractive time to get into emerging equity. >> brics or emerging markets emerged. >> heavyweighted to brics but clearly more countries there. i think broadly if you look at asia, asian equities deeply out of favor. there's opportunity there as
1:38 pm
well. >> you can actually pick up -- head of research was telling me you could pick up in greece and portugal businesses at a fraction. >> joe, point out as you're talking, dow touching multi-year highs. >> awesome. i'll take it. i think to your point, simon, take a look at europe. obviously the issues there are not resolved. how did marks perform last year, germany, greece do last year? this year you may see european outperform again. things are getting a little less bad. the lesson we learned, markets don't need -- >> i think it's funny that a little less bad is equal to the dow multi-year highs. that's the new normal we've grown accustomed to. >> it's just retraced where it was five years ago, not a jamboree. >> evaluations are significantly better, corporate profits doing well. thank you guys for having me always. >> let's recap some of the --

1:44 pm
medicaid spending is expected to be $200 billion or 15% less than projected. that means the rate of growth is coming down. health care experts don't understand what's driving those costs lower, although part of the pespeculation here is the recession, coin and wealth, people for going medical treatment. any slowdown in medical costs might make the president's job tonight easier. back to you. >> thank you very much. when we come back, brian shactman with a very tough assignment. he'll be interview "sports illustrated" swimsuit model kate upton, the first to appear on consecutive issues since tyra banks in 1996, '97. the teleprompter says i'm supposed to say, and i guess you can see why. >> she's a good looking girl. >> yes, she's beautiful.
